What ingredients are used in the Pistachio Bliss Balls?
For these Energy Balls we use dates, pistachios, cashew nuts, and matcha:
- Dates: Dates are perfect for the Bliss Balls as they provide natural sweetness and make the texture a bit gooey which is perfect for shaping the Energy Balls. They also contain many important nutrients, such as iron and potassium.
- Pistachios: Pistachios are not only delicious but also incredibly healthy. Pistachios are among the nuts with the most antioxidants and are also high in protein, fiber, vitamin B6, potassium, and other nutrients.
- Cashew nuts: Cashew nuts bring a high copper and iron content and thus support the red blood cells and the immune system in our body. In addition, cashew nuts consist of healthy fatty acids, which not only provide us with energy but also have a positive effect on the cardiovascular system.
- Matcha: Matcha adds a slightly sour and special flavor to the Bliss Balls. Japanese green tea powder is high in antioxidants that help prevent aging, chronic diseases, and infections.
You can vary the ingredients as you like. Almonds, walnuts or prunes are also great for bliss balls. If you’re after coconut flavor, I can recommend my Matcha Energy Balls with almonds and coconut.
How are the Pistachio Matcha Bliss Balls prepared?
It’s best to put all the ingredients in a food processor and process them until you get a sticky mass that you can shape easily with your hands.
If you don’t have a food processor, you can easily chop the dates and nuts with a knife.
How long do the Energy Balls last?
It is best to store the Pistachio Energy Balls in an airtight container. They can be kept in the fridge for up to a week – if they last that long at all! 🙂
If you generally like chilled snacks, you can also store them in the freezer.
